NEW YORK – The Museum of Wild and Newfangled Art is a newly opened online museum specifically designed for the digital age. This cutting-edge, online platform provides a space for artists and art of all mediums to be showcased while providing visitors and members with a unique experience.

Available for viewing now, the Opening Show features a variety of wild and newfangled art, including interactive exhibits, 360 videos, experimental photography, films, videoart, sound, gifs, software-generated works and the first Zoom Mini Opera.

“Now more than ever, artists need financial relief as well as an accessible place to showcase their art” said artist Cari Ann Shim Sham*, who co-founded the museum along with artist Joey Zaza.

“As large institutions cancel or postpone shows, the art that is being made currently will not be seen, might be lost, or perhaps considered irrelevant by a show that is scheduled as far off as 2022,” said Zaza.
